Now I happily read the announcement of samba-3.0.0rc1 and installed it
on my home linux (mdk-cooker) box. One thing is, you have to change
every call in the initscripts back from "samba3" to "samba" again.
Now, that I have it running (nmbd and smbd show up in the process list),
and ftp as anonymous user as well as a smbpasswd (tdbsam actually) set
up, I tried
# smbclient -L localhost -d5
[root@woodpecker shorewall]# smbclient -L localhost -d5

### WTF??? Here my local name resolution:

+ [root@woodpecker shorewall]# host localhost
+ localhost.homnet.at has address 127.0.0.1
+ [root@woodpecker shorewall]# host 127.0.0.1
+ 1.0.0.127.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer localhost.
+ [root@woodpecker shorewall]# host woodpecker
+ woodpecker.homnet.at has address 192.168.0.1
+ [root@woodpecker shorewall]# host 192.168.0.1
+ 1.0.168.192.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer woodpecker.homnet.at.

## So please don't tell me it doesn't work. I didn't change it since
## running the beta3, which didn't exhibit such weirdness ...
## And then, naturally

Well, a # nmap -sU localhost

+ Starting nmap 3.30 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2003-08-17
+ 14:30 CEST
+ Interesting ports on localhost (127.0.0.1):
+ (The 1466 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
+ Port State Service
+ 53/udp open domain
+ 111/udp open sunrpc
+ 123/udp open ntp
+ 137/udp open netbios-ns
+ 138/udp open netbios-dgm

clearly shows my ports are open, at least internally.
